The letter of the day for the 2016 A-Z Blogging Challenge is F! To read more about my theme, “All Things Geek,” click here. To check out a few more blogs participating in the challenge, click here!


F is for The Flash! As a kid, my favorite super hero was The Flash. I didn’t know much about him at first. I discovered him when my parents let each of us (my brother, sister, and I) pick out a comic book on vacation. I chose The Flash comic and loved him the most ever since.

theflashmemeEven though I started out with a comic book in my hand, I never got into more of the comic books (I’m hoping to change that soon). I watched The Flash in cartoons and always wished I could run that fast.

For awhile I fell out of love with Superheroes because I was getting a little tired of all the movies coming out…lame, right? Now, I am back on board and watching The Flash TV show for the first time. I love it so far (NO SPOILERS!).

The Flash is 100% good. He wants to save everyone and it tears him apart when he can’t. The show is funny, exciting, with enough suspense to keep me on the edge of my seat. If you haven’t started watching The Flash yet, season one is on Netflix!

Did you have a favorite super hero as a kid?

    One of my childhood memories is going to a Ben Franklin store for comic books. They were the nearest 5 & dime store in a very rural area. I remember the Archie comics and the Marvel heroes. If only I’d kept them… Thanks for the memory jump start 🙂

    My husband is watching the Flash series, so I sometimes peek above his shoulder and have a glimpse of it… not a fan though 😀
    I do not think I had a super-hero in a sense mentioned above, I was a fan of some writers, loved some historical figures… but no Supermans or Spidermans for me 😉

      It’s definitely not for everyone. Who’s your historical superhero? That counts in my book!

    Ive got caught up with The Flash series. I like him because even tho he has a super power his real super power is his concern for others. That’s the kind of super hero people need.

      I agree! That’s what makes him a true hero. 😀

    I remember watching the 90s Flash TV show – used to love it. Haven’t got into the new one, mostly deliberately, simply because I have so much to watch anyway :). I think a child my fav superhero was probably Wonder Woman – love that show.

      Thanks for sharing! I never got into Wonder Woman, but I’m not sure why that is. I should try her again!

    I’ve been reading comics since I could hold a book in my hand without tearing it to pieces. I collected just about everything DC and Marvel published in the 50’s into the 70’s. Tastes change, but I’ve almost always loved Batman.

    Glad to find you on the A to Z

      That’s so awesome! I wish I’d been into comics from an early age. I was more into Manga as a teen onward. Batman is awesome! Thank you for visiting me. 🙂

    FLASH GORDON! There was even a very poorly made movie with a soundtrack performed by Queen.

      A little different than The Flash I think, but I haven’t seen Flash Gordon so maybe it’s similar? I remember the song by Queen though!

    As a little kid I enjoyed the Atom. He was a super hero and super smart. Loved the Flash and all the DC greats. But my most favorite superhero is and will always be Batman!
